pulling hard right on brakeing
Hey guys heres a little info any input would be awsome. I have just recently replaced most of the front end on my truck. Upper lower ball joints, inner outer tie rods , pitman arm and idler arm. After doing this I noticed my truck pulled to the right on braking... Then I had a shop install my 2.5 in level kit and shocks and align it ( because the sent me the wrong parts the first time when i had her apart! :( ) and still it was pulling to the right with braking the harder the brakeing the worse it gets.... So i checked the caliper that i recently replaced to find it was sticking again.. so i replaced that and then the rear wheel cylinder on the same side that was bad so after all this my truck is still pulling to the right on brakeing... Any ideas this one has me stumped!!

sounds like a braking issue

you may be able to adjust the brakes on the opposite side to make them more even
sometimes the auto adjusters don't work well & you have to adjust them manually

I adjusted the rear drums both sides when I changed the wheel cylinder.. I adjusted them till it had a little bit of drag. But it still pulls and the pedal doesent feel all that hard. Very frustrating lol

some things to consider

is your 13 year old brake fluid a nice & clear color ? or is it time for a full line flush, either DIY or a shop

when you changed the wheel cylinder, did you maybe leave a bit of air in the system ?

personally i picked up a MityVac 8020 hand pump to do the bleeding/flushing
i had a friend keeping the master cylinder full, no need for anyone to pump the brake pedal
